Remember when they were saying how women were better at the stock market than men? Seems like we are nearly all that's left on this board right now. I read that women are more patient, can hold on through panics, remain calmer, etc. Looks like they might have known what they were talking about. Well, girls, good for us and good luck to us (and any males still left, except he who shall remain nameless ha ha although the pitiable soul has many).
whoa ... sorry. I never do margin stuff maybe that's why I don't make much - or lose much. Hang in there as long as you can, but try not be be on margin because frankly, it may be quite awhile before this turns around. Remember Buffet: the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent. People still think of the dollar as "safe" and it may be quite awhile (I kind of hope so) before they find out otherwise and turn to gold and silver. I don't know if we will be the next Greece or Zimbabewe, but I think either way, I need more time to get prepared.
